Starting sometime last week my HR22-100 started getting choppy and blocking when watching a recorded program or using the buffer on live TV. The problem looks similar to rain fade, but when watching the program live there is no issue. It only happens when I rewind live TV or record it and play it back, and it happens on both SWM tuners.

None of my other DVRs are experiencing this problem. I've tried RBR and the system test in the setup menu with no luck. Recordings before March 16th playback with no problems.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

System info:
HR22-100
0x457, Feb 17th
SWM

Thank you!

Had an HR20 with the same issue a couple weeks back. After a huge runaround D* replaced the received. Problem solved.

Looked like a hard drive issue.

When the choppiness only occurs during recordings or playback of the Live Buffer, that is a good indication of a hard drive issue. Does the choppiness occur at the same point if you rewind and play back the recording again?

Today's problems don't worry me, I haven't solved yesterday's yet.

It's hard to tell, but it looks like the problems do occur at the same point in the recording. I was also thinking it might be a hard drive issue. Does the DVR have a built in hard drive check that won't delete the good recordings I have on the disk?

Yes, You'll need to reboot the receiver and hold down the record & down arrow [both] buttons on the front panel. This should bring up the menu to runs short & long tests.

As was posted before this is almost always caused by a hard drive starting to go bad. You can run the hard drive test VOS mentions in his post, or just call DirecTV and try to get them to send a replacment.
Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."
